COVID-19 hit the city hard, but Detroit remains strong in battling the virus.

Testing criteria for Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) has been expanded in Michigan to include individuals with mild symptoms and essential workers still reporting to work in person, whether they have symptoms or not.

There are many sites across Michigan to test for COVID-19. You should get a test if:

  • You are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath. You should also contact your health care provider or telehealth program to discuss whether you should be evaluated for testing.
  • Each coronavirus test provider will determine if testing is appropriate based on your symptoms, risk factors and test availability.
